Community partners play a critical role in helping Ball State University students become engaged citizens of Muncie and Delaware County. Whether it is conducting orientations and training sessions, involving students in ongoing projects, or helping students see the impact they are having on the community through direct service, community partners are co-educators for each student with whom they interact. Attending the Volunteer Recruitment Fair each semester is a great opportunity for community partners to begin developing relationships with their student volunteers.
There are multiple ways an agency can partner with the Office of Student Life and Student Voluntary Services. Agencies wishing to propose anything from a one time service experience to an ongoing partnership should email Student Voluntary Service at SVS@BSU.edu.
